This week we have been finding lots of new people to teach. We had 2 family nights last week, which is our goal every week. It’s going pretty well. We found some people who are really great. We made a contact on the street with a guy named Anselmo. He was super interested in the Book of Mormon. We then marked a day to come back. I was doing divisions with a sister when we found Anselmo. We went to his house and he wasn’t there but we found his sister Tacila. We started talking with her and found out she had lost her mom about 3 months ago and was going to a church where they don’t believe that we can be together with our families forever. Her church believes that we won’t know anyone--that we will all be strangers after this life. We testified of the plan of salvation that the Lord has for us and that we will know each other after this earth. The spirit was so strong and she told us that she always felt that in her heart.
Conference was amazing! So many changes happened. There will be a temple in Russia--that is so amazing. A Brazilian Apostle!!! Everyone was sooo happy here. I love the conference season--the chance we have to hear from our prophet and his apostles. We are truly blessed. This conference strengthened my testimony about a living prophet who guides us today.
Easter was good! We got some chocolate eggs that some people made for us--Lots of chocolate. I’m feeling the Easter love in my belly!! It is so nice to remember the Savior a little bit more during this season! I’m grateful for my Savior and his love I feel every day on my mission. Every moment I feel his love! --in times of grief or pain or love and joy. He is always there.
Love you all!!!
